NYC: Joy of Sake Aftertaste: Aroma

jos_aftertaste.jpgJoy of Sake Aftertaste:

Origin of Aroma

It took sake-makers nearly a century to unlock the secrets of how to make ginjo sakes with floral and fruity aromas. This month’s Aftertaste looks at how brewers coax fragrances like apple, banana, litchi and anise from just rice, water and yeast.

We’ll try 37 different sakes, ranging from highly aromatic labels to those whose subtle fragrance is barely discernible. The tasting takes an hour and is followed by sake appetizers and more reflective sake-sipping until 8:00 p.m.
